8 Comments to “Spectrum Mobile : Activation, Plans & Payments”

  1. I am trying to activate my spectrum mobile phone. The customer service person said one of my mobile phones was active and when I try to use it I could not receive a call or make a call. On my second phone the service person disconnected before the could start to activate so now my Verizon phone doesn’t work and my spectrum phone doesn’t work for my wife or I either one. This is a real big problem and I have no way of contacting spectrum because they have deactivated the old phones and the new phones

  2. Can not get on the website to activate my phone. Keep saying used a different user name. I tried different ways. It still won’t let do anything. I sent 3 hours on Monday. And today I still can’t get on the website. If I can’t get on. I will go back to Verizon.


  3. Without a doubt the worst service I have ever received from any purchase I have ever made! The phones arrived late and we not the quality described. Customer service was rude and offered no assistance. Absolutely nothing was as promised except for Verizon towers. Activation was a nightmare and required a 100 mile drive to make the very poor quality phone working for about two (2) weeks before it failed.

  4. What kind of customer service is this? He said that he was 87 years old and needed help. That he was lost. Your answer to him is to read “Key Instructions to Activate Spectrum Mobile”. Very poor and very disappointing customer service.
